Of all the minor modes, what criteria do the minor modes below all share
so that they are global?  Once we such a set of rules, we can see
whether patch I submitted makes through the gate.

./progmodes/cwarn.el:339: global-cwarn-mode
./progmodes/prog-mode.el:285: global-prettify-symbols-mode
./linum.el:112: global-linum-mode linum-mode
./simple.el:6563: global-visual-line-mode
./hilit-chg.el:971: global-highlight-changes-mode
./font-core.el:268: global-font-lock-mode
./hi-lock.el:399: global-hi-lock-mode

Your definition of "bloat" (as I see it) is this: If it can be in
.emacs, it can be a bloat.  Given your definition of bloat, cannot the
above lines also reside in .emacs?  Shouldn't this alone make the above
lines a bloat?

> Please show such a rationale.

Usefulnesss is the only rationale.  Of course, do not forget the
ubiquity of URLs in buffers.
